A Proper Pint - your weekend wow.

I'd like to congratulate Mr. Chip Moore for at least attempting an Irish pub.



But at the same time, after reading the article - I wish someone else had instead of him.





"Every big city you go to, you see Irish pubs," Moore explained, but most of them are chains. In New York, for example, Moore saw plenty of what purported to be Irish pubs. Open the door, though, and "you wouldn't know it was an Irish pub. They looked like an Applebee's."



I can rattle off a list of 8 to 10 true pubs off the top of my head, and know I'm missing probably a hundred more. Yet Mr. Moore somehow could not find one real pub to save his life.



And do not get me started on the downtown weekend business thing.



In the interests of charity, I'll leave this alone for now. Suffice it to say if Kara O's was operated like Mr. Moore plans the pub - it would have been severely less than welcoming.



(for reference)

GUINNESS® Draught is best served at 6°C (that’s 42.8°F), with the legendary two-part pour. First, tilt the glass to 45 degrees and carefully pour until three quarters full. Then place the glass on the bar counter and leave to settle. Once the surge has settled, fill the glass to the brim. It takes about 119.5 seconds to pour the perfect pint. But don’t fret. It’s worth the wait. (via Guinness.com)

I am looking forward to it...it's in my neck of the woods...the word Pub is in the name...and they're going to have shepherd's pie.

I feel just awful not being able to pour perfectly. I think I'll open a vein.
